Useful information about the flight from Chicago to Amsterdam

Amsterdam, cosmopolitan city of canals and culture

Amsterdam is an undeniably attractive and vibrant city. The communities that have evolved beside the city's canal network encourage creativity and a lively cultural scene, while a multicultural population ensures that the nightlife and cuisine can rival any in Europe.

The best time to travel, and tips

Amsterdam is at its best in summer when it's comfortable to stroll by the canals and sip a coffee in the Vondelpark cafes. As a northern European city, Amsterdam can get very cold and windswept in winter, but, as compensation, the cultural scene warms up. Major holidays in Holland include the King's birthday on 27th April, celebrated with a festive street market in Amsterdam, and Bevrijdingsdag on 5th May, marking the liberation from Nazi occupation. From Amsterdam Centraal station there is a free ferry service over the river to the NDSM cultural complex.

Important information before travelling

The best value restaurants in Amsterdam are often ethnic places offering cuisine from Indonesia, Surinam and the Dutch Antilles. Before taking a cab ask the driver to give an idea of the cost, as journeys can be expensive. Amsterdam is a relatively safe city but it makes sense to be vigilant about possessions in crowds and on busy trams. Visitors should also be aware of cyclists traveling fast on cycle lanes.
